Special Holiday Event
Friday, December 30th
Trapp Family Lodge Wine Cellar
Each bottle of Champagne is adorned, in small print, with a producer’s number preceded by two letters which classify the producer within the framework of the larger Champagne community. The most common initials to find on a bottle are NM or Negociant-Manipulant – these are typically the large houses such as Perrier-Jouet who buy grapes to make Champagnes under their own label.
Another set of initials, but slightly less common are CM or Cooperative Manipulant, this denotes that the wine was produced by a cooperative of farmers and sold under that cooperative’s brand.
RM stands for Recoltrant Manipulant which translates to Grower-Producer. These are the small farms that make wine from estate-grown fruit. (Edited from North Loop Wine & Spirit web site)
